DESCRIPTION

The EcoFair is 100% volunteer driven. It is a fun, community-based, family-oriented event that informs and inspires people to make greener choices in their homes and communities. It is organized by Green Neighbours Network and Transition Toronto. Whereas the 2020 EcoFair Toronto was entirely virtual, this year’s EcoFair will include online events Nov 5 and 6, and inlife exhibits and activities on Nov 7 at Artscape Wychwood Barns and outdoors in an adjacent Park.
